Students love "Story in a Bag", even the most reluctant writers will enjoy this writing lesson. It can be used as a writing activity, writing center, or free time activity. Simply collect random objects and put them in a bag. Then present the students with the story starter, show them the objects you have selected, and tell them they must include the objects as they write the rest of the story. The only rule...objects may not be listed in the story, they each must have a purpose in the story.
